[Sun cooperates with Ericsson, NEC, Nokia, Nortel, and Telcordia in development of a Java operating system for 3G smart phones.]

New York -- "Sun Microsystems Inc. and several major cellular equipment makers agreed to jointly develop a standardized Java-based operating system for third-generation Internet-enabled cell phones.

"Financial terms weren't disclosed. Sun Microsystems (SUNW) said the accord, which is nonbinding until a definitive agreement is signed, includes L.M. Ericsson Telephone Co. (ERICY), NEC Corp. (NIPNY), Nokia Corp. (NOK), Nortel Networks Corp. (NT) and Telcordia Technologies Inc.

"The companies will start the development of the next-generation operations support system, or OSS, through an initiative that standardizes all Java-based applications being developed for a particular industry. By setting these standards, cellular carriers and service providers can build systems in which different applications can be easily integrated and work well together, Sun said.
